    I have been using ProPay for over 2 years now and I highly recommend their services to anyone. Being a very small business just starting out, I was looking for the most affordable credit card service. Their start up price is extremely reasonable and you don’t have to buy an expensive credit card machine.

    Credit cards have made an impact on my sales too. Most of my website sales are credit card purchases. I also do craft shows and find that customers buy more when they see I take credit cards, especially around the holidays.

    ProPay is so easy to use. I process all my CC sales online. When the money comes available, I can either transfer it to my checking account or use the debit card that is linked to my ProPay account.

    I am very pleased with their services!

    Thanks for the kind comments. We hear a lot of success stories like yours. Accepting credit cards really does make a difference. In fact, I wasn’t able to mention it on the show, but just yesterday we posted two new pages on our site. One contains audio success stories from our users. The other is a short presentation that shows how ProPay works and how credit cards can help grow your businesses.
